    A beautiful, wonderful, funny/heart-wrenching, thought-provoking record from Mr. Wainwright III as he looks back on what is, what was and what could have been. Stirring, emotional ballads ('In C') mix with humorous ditties ('My Meds') in a joyful/painful looking back/forward at life. With the exceptions of 'Date Line' and 'I Remember Sex', one of Loudon's best records ever, IMO.

    You'd be mistaken to pass up the greatest album of Loudon Wainwright III's four-decade career, and an easy frontrunner for this year's best album, period, as 2012 enters its second half.

    Older Than My Old Man Now tackles serious topics with empathy and laughter. By looking at himself, Wainwright shows us what will someday happen to all of us.

    Wainwright has a true gift for turning heartbreak into brilliant folk rock.
